Now we can listen to internet radio on our Stream and find the stations we want creating station playlists and listening to the news. We have more flexibility when searching for books on Bookshare. We can look up words in Bookshare books or NFB-Newsline articles in Wikipedia and learn more about the item. I love my Victor Reader Stream even more than before. If you have not upgraded to the new Stream, it is time to do so. This new software is free.
I rely on a voice note Apex, having retired the Empower for a newer Humanware model. I am just as pleased with it as I was with the first device and plan to use it for many years to come. It is an intuitive little machine, lightweight, portable, and able to interface with my personal computer with improved software tools. What impresses me the most is the improvements in internet accessibility and the ergonomic wrist rest below the QUARTY keyboard. This design improvement allows my hand to rest upon it so I have less wrist fatigue when typing for extended periods of time. Thank you Humanware for providing this great machine so people like me can continue to lead independent, productive lives.
The use of Braille Note takers revolutionized many aspects of my life, and brought Braille back in to my world in a new way. For myself, one of the most thrilling concepts about me and my BrailleNote is the idea that the Braille world, which I thought I had lost has come back alive, and will always be part of me, how I work, and who I am. The BrailleNote allows me to be competitive, and still keep using Braille to eternity. I am looking forward to exploring many more uses I have still not touched upon for my BrailleNote. Some day, should I need to get an iPhone; the good part will be that I’ll be able to use it with my BrailleNote.

My stream is my most important item in my bag. Through the years I have used a digital recorder, tape recorder, I Pod and all together they weighed me down. Now I take the one device and am set. Thank God for the makers of the VR Stream!

Congratulations on the new Stream software. I thought the NFB-Newsline was cool. This latest release with the Internet is amazing. I love that it was so intuitive to figure out. I didn't read my notes and just figured it out easily.
